Cars that stack against each other, and the future city.

If there were Tesla cars that could park on its edge rather than its four wheels, we can have our cities back!

I remember seeing a scene in the 2004 Will Smith starrer movie I,Robot where they show cars stacking up against each other….it got me thinking, those cars must be electric. A sleek Audi that does the job in the movie, and I wonder, will the Tesla not do the same if it is designed to park vertically?

I write this post in eager earnest, to inspire many engineers of our time to make our cars park on its side, so that we urban designers can reimagine the billions of square feet of parking lots that occupy prime real estate in our cities today.  That way we can have some of our parking lots back. We can start with an additional bedroom/hobby space instead of two car garages in our suburban homes, to make room for living things.
